To Apply

Applications will be accepted beginning January 5, 2016. Positions will remain open until filled. Specific job descriptions available upon request. Part of your application process is to gather three written references from respected individuals who are willing to document your character and work ethic. Teachers, past employers, and/or youth group leaders are all excellent examples of good references. New applicants are not considered until three written references are submitted, so we recommend you personally gather the forms yourself, or provide a pre-addressed and stamped envelope to the individual providing the reference.
